Laboratory Safety

Shops & Art Studios

Shops

Many shops have dangerous machines and tools that could become a hazard if the proper safety precautions are not taken.

Art Studios

The common misconception when working in the arts is that it is a nonhazardous occupation, which creates a greater risk of exposure and injury due to hazardous art materials being used. Research has shown that an artist's craft has the potential to adversely affect his/her health. If not properly used, art materials and processes can cause physical injury or illness. It is essential for artist to understand studio hazards and how to be protected.
